While many restaurants advocate sharing plates, not all of them enforce that rule as a political ethos. At The Social List (get it?!?) in Long Beach, they insist that all food on the table is communal (like their breakfast burger with applewood-smoked bacon or peanut butter French toast waffles) but strangely don’t apply the same collective ownership logic to their bottomless mimosa deal. Interesting.
